Farming With a Difference
Soldiers who are restless indoors after the
life in the open will give heed to a booklet sent
out by the War department from the office of
Col. Arthur Woods, assistant to the secretary.
- Many a man has not loved his little old job
so much since he renewed his acquaintance
with it. He finds it cramped and confining.
Life was no picnic in France. But for all the
" devilishness, he finds his thoughts straying from
-the streets to the trenches, from the desk to
. the dugout,- from the office to the shell-plowed
- fields where the wind breathes through the
grasses in benediction over the fallen. ;
j Urban sophistication in the cities poked fun,
before the war, at the farmer. He was sup
posed to be uncouth and gullible a child of
nature. He chewed a straw and pulled his
beard and greased his boots and rose by lamp
light, and was a man with a hoe among the
herds and orchards, a man to 'Whom the great
"round world was a . blank page or , a distant
Now that is changed. The farmer is an ap
' plied scientist, whose opinion is sought and re
spected, with whose vote lies the balance of
power, in whose hand, as it is busy or idle, is
; the feeding or starving of the nations. , For
'. milliont during the war life has been a grim,
'.unmitigated quest of food. The farm has had
to yield by intensive cultivation many times-its
former oroduce. and marketing in haphazard
ways has had to yield to methodic and speedy
transportation. Farm work andjarm life today
utilize every last development of engineering.
The machinery has revolutionized farm labor,
and electricity and gasoline are the greatest of
..all hired hands. The motorcar, the tractor, the
dairy, machinery, the telephone are common
. places where once they were unknown.
The demobilized fighter no longer regards
, indifferently or scornfully the chance the farm
'. holds out to him. If he is not aware, he can
I learn from such a booklet as this before us what
. prospect of healthful work at a fair wage is
open to him; . The fields are clamoring for him

LAW-BREAKING ANff LAWLESS POLICE
Is it necessary for enforcing the liquor lawa to
set at naught all other laws? Does punishment
of law-breaking call for midnight invasion of
people's homes, beating up the inmates and
general rough-housing of common decency? Are
our "booze hounds" a law unto themselves and
above all other law?
The high-handed methods of our Omaha
moral squad as illustrated by their recent per
formances seem to us wholly indefensible, just
what the public has always protested against
arbitrary and brutal abuse of police power. It
is not a question whether. the victims are other
wise reputable folks or poor devils without
friends, whether they are guilty or innocent
They ough to have some rights entitled to be
respected even by the police.
We submit that there is no good reason for
dragging men and women to jail in the wee
hours of the morning when they can be ar
rested any time they are wanted and no danger
of trying to run away. The same applies to the
execution of search warrants at unreasonable
hours in homes whose occupants have already
gone to bed, when the search can be made just
as well and just as effectively in proper time of
the day and the liquor, if any is held in illegal
possession, seized in the day time with no im
pairment of the consequences.
Why can't we have a little less lawlessness
and a little more common sense in the hand
ling of this business?
President's Pre-War Preparations.
Report made in the house by the chairman
of a committee of investigation on the course
pursued by the president for some months prior
to our entry into the war promises some inter
esting disclosures. In outline, the charge is
made that the law which authorized the ap
pointment of a council of national defense was
perverted by the executive, and out of this grew
some embarrassing situations. To its operations
has been traced most of the vexatious delays
that proved so costly at the start
We know now what some suspected, that
the mobilization of the National Guard on the
Rio Grande in 1916 was not so much to overawe
the Mexicans as to give Germany a notion of
what force we might put into the field on short
notice. Mr. Wilson had in his possession in
formation of such nature as must have con
vinced him of the impossibility of evading war
with Germany, unless the leaders of that coun
try radically changed their policy. He did not
know what strength might be hastily mustered
in this country. He did know that any force
we could put under arms on short notice was
woefully inadequate. In order to get at an exact
basis the troop movement to Texas was under
taken. It did not seriously impress either Hoh
enzollern or Carranza, but it did show thought
ful Americans how pitifully weak our nation
was at the time.
Authorized to name a council for defense as
part of a preparedness movement, the president
by a perversion of the plain intent of the law
took to himself the formulation of plans for the
entire campaign. That he had only the best of
motives will be admitted. (That his judgment
was at fault is equally plain. As a result the
American people were put to enormous ex
pense, while the process of getting ready was
held back rtiany precious 'days. Further dis
closures will be waited with interest, but enough
is already shown to support the conclusion that
the blunders that marked the war program were
begun long before the public had any idea of
what was going on.
The Basis for Prosperity.
"Good times" in America do not rest solely
on the plenitude of money and the consequent
high prices. A more substantial strata of real
facts underlies the present prosperity, and en
sures it continuance for an indefinite period. In
-the building situation alone, and it is enough in
itself to maintain industrial activity at its
present pitch, we are faced with conditions
Careful estimates put the number of needed
homes in the United States at 10,000,000. This
makes no note of the buildings required for the
expanded business of the land. Here is a pros
pective expenditure of at least twenty billions.
Other billions are required for housing the
growing commerce and industry of America.
Railroad maintenance, to say-nothing of ex
tension and improvement, call for additional bil
lions,' and in every phase or branch of industry
similar demand for new capital is heard. The
world has moved into an era of expansion
greater than any it ever faced.
Warnings against unwise speculation as well
timed, and should be heeded, but opportunity
for legitimate investment is presented on every
hand. Capital may be profitably employed in
so many ways the prudent investor may find
some difficulty in making up his mind which
to select from the multitude of inviting pros
pects that surround him. The great work can
not all be done at once, but must of necessity
be extended over a considerable period of years,
but its urgency will not diminish, and therefore
it is as sure as earthly thing's can be that all our
national energies may be usefully engaged for
a long time to come. Restoration of wealth de
stroyed by war and creation of new to meet the
expanding needs of society underlie the activity
of the present and guarantee the employment
of all for the future.
Control of Automobile Thievery.
Massachusetts has a new law designed to
deal with the crime of stealing automobiles.
Essentially it follows the line suggested by The
Bee more than two years ago, in that it places
primary responsibility on dealers. Traffic in
second-hand cars or parts of cars is minutely
regulated, and heavy penalties prescribed for
infractions. With vigilance on part of the police
and ordinary prudence exercised by dealers, dis
posing of stolen machines inMassachusetts ought
to be attended with much difficulty, if not made
impossible. In order to make his business suc
cessful, the thief must have means for dispos
ing of his plunder. When buyers become cau
tious and dealers are all honest, the rogue1 will
soon be out of business. But the country is
large, the roads are filled with touring carsrand
the dishonest are thus assisted in carrying on
their traffic. Until regulations such as Massa
chusetts has adopted are made generally, and
registration is insisted upon everywhere, the
thief will have the advantage of the owner. -
Americans also "cleaned up" in the inter
allied army athletic games, showing the versa
tility of the boys who went over". You can't

Reindeer and the Esquimos
Theodore G. Joslin in Boston Transcript.
Washington Depletion of walrus, whale and
other wild game threatened the-extinction of
Alaska's Eskimo population a score of years
ago. Today, thanks to the efforts of Dr. Shel
don Jackson and five metropolitan newspapers,
the Eskimos are literally living on the fat of
the land, untroubled by the,, high cost of food
anywhere else in the world, his transition has
been made possible by the introduction of rein
deer from Siberia, which have multiplied from a
small herd to 140,000, and Alaska can care for
15,000,000 of these animals, thus assuring to the
north a great industry and to the nation an im
portant source of food supply.
The Eskimo would have been content to loll
around his igloo as long as the cold weather,
whale oil and blubber lasted, but that was be
fore the white man persisted in civilizing him,
before lolling was classed as laziness, and be
fore evolution of the Eskimo from a hunter and
fisherman into a herder of reindeer had begun.
Now, instead of idling away his time, he is
preparing for the reindeer fairs, for this is the
season for the meets in Arctic Alaska. , Here
the Eskimo brings his handiwork for exhibi
tion along with the sewing of the native women
and girls of the .mission schools; here races
are held, prizes won and reindeer exchanged and
sold. Reports are made by delegates from the
various reindeer stations; new head herders are
chosen and improvements discussed for the gen
eral betterment of the industry.
Each year, as the fair draws near, the Eskimo
may be seen busily working over long strips
of leather or putting the finishing touches on a
pair of reindeer mitts. Visions of the races of
the reindeer barbecue which accompanies each
fair, and the exhibits of sleighs, snowshoes, har
nesses, halters and mittens, come to his mind,
and he is glad that he has been named a dele
gate. For, aside from the honor implied, the
Eskimo is sociable by nature, is easily amused
and thoroughly enjoys the sport which the
races and various meetings afford.
Herders and their deer arrive at the fair
grounds 24 hours prior to the opening, each
delegation floating a pennant bearing the name
of the station from which they come. At
Noatak the situation is ideal. Extending around
a little creek bed, in the foothills, thick spruce
timber forms a protecting wall about the colony
of tents which the delegates pitch upon their
arrival. The racing course is on a small plateau
which may be easily viewed by the spectators.
As one drives out to the grounds, eight miles
from Noatak, he strikes one end of the race
course. It is staked every 200 yards with fresh
ly trimmed poles,' from the top of which flutter .
red, white and blue pennants, made by the sew
ing class of the Noatak Mission. For the 'day
of all idays in the Arctic is at hand, the day
when the Eskimo hopes to capture the blue rib
bon for the fleetest deer. Patient and long
have been his efforts to get his racer into proper
trim. For weeks the choicest moss has been
chosen and carefully guarded for the con
sumption of the prize animal. Experience has
taught the herder that he must feed often, but
not to excess, as a fat deer, like a fat horsed is
not a prize winner.
The Eskimo drives on the course a few min
utes before the time set forvthe race. Harnes
and sled are new and shining. For the last
time his mittened hands travel over the har
ness to make sure that all is as it should be.
The racer is tied to a post driven into the snow,
for it is more than the driver can do to hold his
deer in check. The rope is cut as the shot is
fired, and they are off the reindeer running
neck and neck, the drivers flecking the backs
of the deer and enjoying the race fully as much
as any Readville enthusiast. It may be a two
mile or a 10-mile race. As the winner crosses
the finish line the deer is decorated with a
blue ribbon and the driver is awarded a gun,
an ivory knife, or similar prize.
The days are given over to the races, visit
ing the exhibits and bartering and butchering
the deer, but the evenings are reserved for the
more serious business of the round-up. Reports
from delegates are heard and suggestions are
made for feeding and taming reindeer. Dele
gates are chosen for the next year and in
structed to organize local clubs. A board of
head herdsmen, experienced in the business of
handling the animals, is elected to supervise the
work for the two ensuing years.
The early history of the reindeer industry
is romantic. Just at the time the Eskimo of
Alaska was in danger of being wiped out be
cause of the depletion of the wild game on
which" he lived, Dr. Sheldon Jackson, a mission
ary, together with pioneer prospectors, sug
gested the introduction of reindeer from Si
beria. The suggestion received little support.
Instead, it brought open criticism and censure
on those responsible. Not until Dr. Jackson
was given the active support of the five news
papers was public sympathy aroused in the un
dertaking. These papers collected a fund by
popular subscription, making possible the pur
chase and transportation of the first reindeer
from Siberia. Realizing that the country was
interested, congress thereafter made appropriations.

Record of the 23d Infantry.
Joan Crane We can not give you
the record of an individual unit, but
the Second division, of which the 23d
infantry was part had its full share
of fighting. In June of last year it
was sent into the front line between
Montdidier and Paris, to stem the
German wave. It attacked and re
took the village of Bouresches, held
by the best of the German guard
regiments. At Belleau Wood it gave
signal evidence of its superiority over
the foe, and its capture of Vaux,
July 1, is one of the most brilliant
incidents of the war. Later it was
in the thrust towards Soissons, and
still later took part in the St. Mihiel
and the Meuse-Argonne drives. It
was in the front line twice in the lat
ter. On the day the armistice was
signed this division was in the line
just east of Beaumont. All the regi
ments in this division had plenty of
opportunity to see action, and none
of them missed battle.
H. W.' M. We have no informa
tion as to when the Second division
will be sent home from Germany,
where it is now stationed. There" is
a recruiting station at Norfolk,
where men are being enlisted for
service in the United States army.

Prosperity and Economics
A man's personal circumstances make all the
difference in the wdrld in his views of economic
rights and wrongs. Give the most extreme and
vociferent socialist on the town plat a job at
$15,000 a year and he no longer will believe that
all the money on earth ought to be divided up
Nd state in the union is more opposed to bol
shevism in all its crack-brained and hideous
tenets than, Kansas. Kansas stands like a rock,
a living, speaking rock, for the recognized and
just rights of property. Kansas is harvesting
its wheat crop, 11,000,000 acres, 225,000,000 bush
els of the golden grain, worth $450,000,000 if a
cent. The only bone' Kansas has to pick with
capitalism at present is that the automobile com
panies are shamefully behind on their deliveries.
Otherwise, the status quo is just about right.
But if the government had fixed the price of
wheat at 50 cents a bushel, or if the hot winds
and the grasshoppers and the Hessian fly had
harried and ravaged and despoiled those golden
fields, Kansas, as we know by past experience,
would be for bolshevism in some rural guise

The Cannibal Flab.
BACK and forth through the un
derwater jungle danced the
merry gobline, at one moment glint
ing in the sunshine and the next
vanishing In gloomy shadows. Their
frolic developed Into a rollicking
game of hide and seek. This was
jolly fun, for there was so much
foliage just the color of the sunflsh
that they could lay there, giggling
with glee, without Peggy or Billy
ever seeing them.
Other fish lay in the concealing
foliage, too big fish that didn't have
the kindly dispositions of the sun
flsh. Peggy was erfgerly searching
for the hiders when she saw a glint
of silvery scales behind a bunch of
grass. She rushed up Joyfully to
tag it, holding her hand back to
give it a sound slap, when suddenly
General Croaker rushed at her,
knocked her back, then djved head
long into a mud bank, crawling out
of sight. There was a flurry in the
water and away went the water gob
lins racing for dear life.
Peggy, puzzled by this, floated

about uncertainly. Looking back at
the bunch of grass, she saw a great,
teeth-filled mouth open wide in a
sleepy yawn. In a flash she under
stood the patch of silvery scales
was on a monster fish which had
been sound asleep In the grass and
was now waking up. ,
"It's a pickerel!" gurgled Billy
.when they were at a safe distance.
"One snap and it would have been
'goodby Peggy.' "
The water goblins soon recovered
from the alarm, and after a time
General Croaker came crawling out
of the mud; Then they went at their
frolio in greater glee than ever. Tir
ing of hide-and-go-seek, they played
f jllow-the-leader, and one of their
stunts was to leap as far as they
coulu out of the water. Peggy, fly
ing for a moment into the air in one
of these leaps, caught a glimpse of
Pat Clancey, the widow's son, fish
ing on the bank.
"My, wouldn't he be surprised if
he pulled me up at the end of the
worms. The game consisted In see
ing how big a chunk each one could
line?" she gurgled.
As she splashed back into the wa
ter she found the water gobline in
a new game. They -were gathered
around Pat's hook, which dangled in
the water, loaded with squirming
ing how big a cunk each one could
bite off the hook without getting
-caught. Peggy . and Billy wanted
to Join the sport, but didn't a bit
fancy biting a worm.
Poor Pat Jerked out his line and
rebaited his hook, but he didn't
catch one of the merry, but wary,
sunflsh goblins. They were too wise
When this fun was at its height,
there came a sudden rush as a
whole school of, minnows fled by In
- "Look out! Look out! The can
nibal fish are coming!" they gasped.
With one flirt of their tails the
water goblins vanished into the Jun
gle. General Croaker abruptly lost
himself in a mass of weeds.
Huge shadows moved slowly
through the water. Looking up,
Peggy and Billy saw that the shad
ows were made by great flsh. At
the same moment the fish saw
them. ' Powerful tails thrashed out
and the water fairly boiled as the
flnny cannibals rushed downward.
Peggy and Billy fled desperately.
Plunk! they hit the bottom with the
cannibals coming fast. Quickly using
his wits, Billy dug into the mud,
throwing it up In handfuls. It roiled
the water, making a concealing
cloud that hid them for a momerft.

Six Months' Lynching Record.
Tuskogee Institute, Ala., July 3.
To the Editor of The Bee: I send
you the following information con
cerning Jynchings for the first six
months of this year. I find, accord
ing to the records kept by the de
partment of records and research of
the Tuskogee Institute, Monroe N.
Work in charge, that there have
been in the first six months of 1919
28 lynchings. This is seven less than
the number, 35, for the first six
months of 1918, and 14 more than
the number, 14, for the first six
months of 1917.
Of those lynched 25 were negroes
and three were white. Seven of
those put to death were charged
with the crime of rape. One woman
is reported to have been lynched.
The states in which lynchings oc
curred and the number for each
state are as follows: Alabama, 3;
Arkansas, 4; Florida, 2; Georgia, 3;
Louisiana, 4; Mississippi, 7; Missouri.

Rebukes "Sandy's" Savagery.
Omaha, July 6. To the Editor of
The Bee: As a chooser of pugilistic
champions, Sandy Griswold proved
himself as inaccurate in his hinted
choice as was his description of the
three heroic rounds, contaminated
by his vitrolic and abusive pen.
Were he describing a bull fight or a
hog-killing scene in a packing house,
his story would be more accurate
and realistic. His egotistical opinion
of his own judgment having had so
hard a fall within so short notice,
combined with his daily efforts at
alliteration, rhetorical phrases and
pomposity of expression, intoxicated
his mentality to promulgate the 10c
quacious article depreciating the
strenuous efforts of both the fight
ers. The world knows the fight was
won by the aggressiveness of Demp
sey and not the cowardice of Wil
lard, as Sandy infers. Willard and
Sandy are both old, but the public
prefer optimistic youth to garrulous
old age. P. C. BOWMAN.
